That makes sense. John was talking of becoming resident at Bristol; Frank at Gloucestershire? Where are you going Phil? I only ask because we can keep an eye on Servinfo, to provide friendly fire. Gerry Winskill bones wrote:
I'll stay at EGNS. It will take me a little while to get used to the IVAO interface and to the slight variations to real world rules. To be honest I'm no longer enthralled at the idea of learning the books for weeks just to open up at a different airport. bones -----Original Message----- From: jhb_airlines-bounce@xxxxxxxxxxxxx [mailto:jhb_airlines-bounce@xxxxxxxxxxxxx] On Behalf Of Gerry Winskill Sent: 26 August 2007 18:20 To: jhb_airlines@xxxxxxxxxxxxx Subject: [jhb_airlines] Re: IVAO Mike, I agree with that. It also seems more likely to attract non JHB flyers to the strips manned by JHB's ATC types. The PCI sessions are FSX excluding and that fact alone must freeze them in time. Have controllers now decided at which fields the intend to set up camp?

The only plus would seem to be the ability of the controllers to plug in wherever they want, so we can fly anywhere. Is this feature sufficient on its own? We all know how bad PCI can be with lag when we get a few aircraft in fairly close proximity. Perhaps the time has come to switch our Wednesday sessions to IVAO? I can't help thinking that a couple of sessions such as Bones is suggesting, to build confidence with the 'new' software and to dust off our ATC procedures, is the way to go. With a 'tame' controller at one end, we might consider some arrangement to fly out to, and back from, a selection of other fields (which could be in active ATC areas or not, according to taste). I will certainly try my best to make Tuesday available for this - but I would be just as happy to see our Weds sessions move over to IVAO. Mike L bones wrote:What I would like to do is organise a session at Ronaldsway with as many JHB aircraft as possible. This would test the session nicely and we could see if any problems arise from this. The big question is whether pilots have a spare evening free in addition to Wednesday night so we can run the test. The UK night on IVAO is normally each Tuesday - is anyone free this week for a run?
